Second Suspect Surrenders In Beating Of Gay Man

ATLANTA (AJC/WAOK)-Atlanta police are still looking for one man in connection with a beating of a gay man two weeks ago. A second man connected to the videotaped beating of  20-year-old Brandon White is in police custody.

According to the AJC,  Dorian Moragne turned himself in to Atlanta police custody late Friday afternoon with his attorney close by. According to police, he will be charged with robbery and aggravated assault.

“It’s really important, despite what you may have seen on TV, or on YouTube, that everyone has a presumption of innocence … that cloaks them until and unless a jury of their peers finds them guilty beyond a reasonable doubt,” attorney Jay Abt told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution before his client surrendered to police.

Moragne, 19, is one of three men police have been seeking in the beating of Brandon White, since video footage of the Feb. 4 incident appeared on the internet. Read more on this story here.
